Photographic Competition Returns to the Hudgens Center for the Arts

The Gwinnett Chapter of Georgia Nature Photographers Association is hosting the 6th annual “Stand In Ansel Adams Footsteps” Photographic Competition and Exhibition, currently on display at the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning. The concept and goal of the competition is to shoot black and white (monochrome) photographs to emulate the style, look and feel of Ansel Adams’ work. Adams is well-known for his remarkable black and white landscapes and finely focused textures, forms, and details of nature. This year, 59 photographers registered 326 photographs and more than 130 are on exhibit at the Hudgens Center in three categories: Landscape, Macro/Close Up and Open.

This year’s Juror, Charlotte Gibb, is an award-winning and renowned nature and landscape photographer based in Northern California. She is known for her mastery of “Intimate Landscapes” — small scenes derived from a large landscape with an eye for the subtle, and sometimes overlooked, beauty of nature.

“Stand in Ansel Adams Footsteps” is on view through April 17 at the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, located at 6400 Sugarloaf Pkwy., Building 300, in Duluth. For more information, visit
